Crossing Brooklyn Ferry

Remember that Dessner brother-curated festival, "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry," which is happening at BAM from May 3-5? And remember how when we posted the National-curated ATP lineup we suggested (for obvious reasons) that it might hint at the BAM lineup? Well, the lineup is out now, and there are definitely some similarities to that, and also not surprisingly, to the ongoing Ecstatic Music Festival which is great at highlighting the growing mix between indie rock and indie classical that the Dessners are huge fans of and participants in.

The three day Brooklyn Academy of Music festival includes The Antlers, My Brightest Diamond (w/ yMusic), Sharon Van Etten, and Buke and Gase who are all playing ATP, in addition to The Walkmen, St. VIncent, Beirut, Atlas Sound, Tyondai Braxton (formerly of Battles), Oneohtrix Point Never, Caveman, Sinkane, Twin Shadow, Jherek Bischoff, Pat Mahoney and Nancy Whang (DFA DJ set), Ava Luna, and others which are all listed below. As mentioned, the fest also includes the Brooklyn Youth Chorus and the NOW Ensemble.

3-Day Festival Passes go on sale Monday (3/5) to friends of BAM and Tuesday (3/6) to the general public. More details and schedule at the Crossing Brooklyn Ferry website.

May 3-5: The weekend the music died

Zzzzzzzzzzz.........Oh, I'm sorry, that is just..the most boring line up ever assembled, like ever in the history of music. To call this a festival is misleading because the word FESTIVAL implies that there is fun to be had. Not boring pretentious hipsters stroking their egos and folding there arms to indie dreck.

i love the walkmen, love st vincent-but if the headliner is only playing for a fucking hour-why am i gonna pay MORE money than a ticket to a regular show by either?

Hope the guy from Beirut plays his trumpet. That's so neat-love it when he does that!!!!!!

Underwhelming but it isn't terrible given the venue size.

ATP > Governor's Ball > this.

this is really boring....but its kind of funny that at the end of this boring list, you have Z's (who would actual wake you the fuck up)

is anyone else so, so, so, so, so sick of these brothers?

Looks pretty good to me. Some good acts there. I thought BV readers loved Atlas Sound, St. Vincent, and the Antlers. I get that some of it is boring, but I am not understanding the overall rejection of this event. Good venue. Some good bands. Some others that are interesting. Why the hate?

This isn't too bad, it seems really boring because the headliners play here so often.

Posted by Anonymous | February 29, 2012 8:33 PM

i think most readers on here loved the bands listed something like two years ago. and now, meh.

Pretty sure I saw Bukkake in there somewhere

i like how the walkmen played a FREE show on the hoboken shore (right off the path) a few months ago and there were like 100 people there. and now they're headling a $45 festival! huh?
